“Good views”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

This place is worth passing by if you're in Dubrovnik. The beach is crowded and quite small but the water is beautiful and you have a big variety of restaurants all around. My favourite one is Kompas!

“Nice area”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We stayed in Lapad during our week long trip to Dubrovnic, our apartment (Villa Alba, red apartment) was beautiful and in a great location. We were a few minutes walk to the beach, ( which we weren't too impressed with and preferred the rocks with ladders into the sea) we ate in a few of the restaurants which were nice (Buono was our favorite) and the number 6 bus takes you to the old town in ten minutes, but if visiting again we would probably base ourselves in the old town to be honest, for the atmosphere and restaurants etc and take boat trips out to the islands when it gets too busy. The ferry from Gruz takes you to the islands and there are numerous boat trips from the old town.

“Lovely Lapad”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This is like a little resort on its own, with lots to see and do, wander down to the pebble beach and soak up the rays of the sun stop at a little café and watch the world go by.

“better than staying in the old city”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Lapad is a very neat area, just 15 min by bus from the Pila gate. Much of the area where we stayed is pedestrian only, with cars and restaurants, and a beautiful little harbour and beach.

“Lapad "Beach" Lido Visit”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Plain basic and reminded me of a trip to Odessa when it was back in the old USSR. Some big old girls wearing bikinis on the beach/pebbles so not for the faint hearted.
